The global pandemic caused by COVID-19 has certainly caused a disruption to our regular routines, and that’s particularly true for travel.

But we have also learned so much through the pandemic, allowing the doors to travel to open again. There are opportunities for safe travel to locations near the United States, and by following safety tips, now’s the time to plan your next holiday.

Here are some helpful guidelines to consider as you return to vacation mode:

When traveling, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that you:

● Maintain a distance of 6 feet between yourself and others as much as possible.
● Avoid contact with anyone who is sick.
● Limit contact with frequently touched surfaces, such as handrails, and if you do touch high-contact spots, use hand sanitizer or wash your hands afterward.
● Wear a cloth face mask.
● Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
● Cover coughs and sneezes.
● Wash your hands thoroughly and often.

As well, you can consider your destination carefully to help ensure safety. For instance, look for a resort that has health and safety protocols in place, and that can be reached easily and quickly to minimize time on airplanes.

Sunscape Resorts & Spas are one example of resorts with safety protocols in place, and with locations in some of the best spots, you can’t go wrong when choosing among them. Sunscape offers fun-filled and worry-free, family-friendly vacations, ideal for families, friends, singles, and couples. Enjoy specialty-themed restaurants, bars, and lounges, spacious accommodations that include private terraces, and beachfront settings with an array of beach, land, and water sport activities.

You’ll also feel safe as Sunscape is part of the AMResorts-branded properties, which have implemented their CleanComplete Verification™ for new health and safety policies and protocols. The processes have been verified by a third party and are in place throughout their resorts. Rooms and common areas have increased sanitation and disinfection procedures, check-in and check-out procedures have been modified, there are social distancing guidelines in place, and there are extensive behind-the-scenes sanitation processes.

So it is possible to relax in luxury and be safe, by following some simple guidelines and choosing quality locations such as Ultimate Vacation Club properties, including the six Sunscape Resorts in some of the world’s best destinations.
